My Daddy by Bindi Williams
My dad always takes care of me
He just loves me all the time,
Even when i disturb him
When his words he tries to rhyme,
He quickly picks me up
And gives me a loving pat,
He'll make sure i'm quite content
Before he puts me on my doggy mat.
When i was young i used to
Put my front paws on the window-sill,
It was to welcome home my daddy,
It gave him such a thrill.
I used to chase my sister
Around our large front lawn,
It became our favourite game
Ten weeks after we were born.
My daddy takes me in the car
Down to the local shop,
Then we go walking in the park,
Afterwards, i tend to want to flop.
Three years ago i went blind,
So my dad became my sight,
Sometimes he has to carry me,
My daddy is my shining light.
We live in a gigantic kennel,
Although my dad calls it our home,
"Hey dad i'm feeling peckish,
Can you fetch another bone."
Author Notes: I have two litter sisters, both 13 years of age. They are the best friends i've ever had. Bindi went blind 3 years ago and although we sometimes find it a little hard she still enjoys life immensley. When she's in our local park, she remembers the wide open spaces and feels safe to run. She quite often breaks into a loping run alongside me.
I wish to thank Bindi for her lovely poem-----dad
